On the main streets of Thimpu, this place not offered a good coffee, but great place to hang out. We ordered few snacks and side order and finger food, though it was as per western standards, though we were also not expecting it to be. But at the same time the food was good. Try the Bhutanese chilly paste at... More

The place has a good American burger-bar menu, and more importantly, a very good view of the thoroughfare. It is right opposite a football stadium as well. You may sit either on the cozy inside or the cool outside.

The place has the taste of united kingdom's pubs. Its boiserie with football teams pictures and bar high table complement the outside tables and benches. Located near the footbal stadium it's a nice place for a local beer and a good, reasonably priced, meal. Staff is attentive and service fast.

Friendly and Cozy atmosphere. This restaurant is located in downtown, Thimphu, opposite the stadium. The staff ,esp. owner, are super friendly and welcome. Coffee is "illy" which is one of best taste. Recommended desserts are they homemade "Apple Crumble" , Black Forrest" cake and "Cheese Cake". Next time, i would try pizza and burger:)

Located below town, it has an outdoor terrace with picnic tables and is a good place to try out an authentic Bhutanese meal in the afternoon. Loved the pork and beef ribs! Burgers and hot-dogs are also available. You can access WiFi here.
